Jungling Dragon

Similar to all-arounder types, Dragonite's thrives best at lanes with wild Pokemon to quickly farm experience points. Its base form, Dratini, may also be vulnerable in the early stages so it may not be able to withstand the early battles on either top or bottom lane.

This section is based off what can been seen from the official trailer released by Pokemon Unite.

Combination Of Ranged & Melee Attacks

Headbutt Dash Attack

Dragonite Headbutt Attack

Based on the trailer, we can see Dragonite using its head to dash in and attack Bouffalant. This move is then followed up by consecutive melee attacks from different directions.

Fire-Breathing Move

Dragonite Move 2

This move is similar to Venusaur's Solar Beam but in this case Dragonite blasts its target with scorching fire. It also has a short animation delay so users may need to practice their aiming later to effectively hit enemies with this move, especially moving targets.

Dragonite Basics Tips

Basic Mechanics

This section has basic tips and tricks that you must know to effectively control Dragonite. Treat this as a supplement to the Beginner's Guide.

Prioritize level progression in early stages
Since Dragonite has three forms, it's best to focus Dratini on farming during the early game so it may evolve quickly and unlock its damage-dealing moves. This is to ensure that it can survive the harsh battles that may arise as time goes by.
▶ How To Level Up Fast
Stay close with allies
Dratini may be targeted and harassed when alone, this can cost you a level disadvantage later so may sure to stick with allies. Also, try to check the map once in a while to know where your allies and enemies are to avoid getting ganked.
▶ Map Guide
Equip the right Held Items
Equip Dragonite with Held Items to increase its damage output or buff up its defense in preparation for the intense battles in the Battle Arena. You can start out with the recommended items first then experiment later on with which items suit your play style.

Dragonite's Unite Move has the potential to deal tremendous damage to multiple enemies at once. Can be useful in situations where Pokemon gathers in crowds like Zapdos fights.
May have difficulty aiming at moving targets and miss enemies due to delays from some of its moves short animation beforehand.
You may not be able to control its fire-beam type of move once it is executed. Dragonite may need assistance in pinning down enemies in their place first before using this.
Dragonite having similar to Charizard may also be a late bloomer & game changer. Until it reaches its first powerspike, it may be vulnerable in getting knocked out in battle during the early stages.
